Kristijan Habulin's debut was at round one of the Formula Renault 2.0 Italia on 25 March 2012 at Monza. He finished fifth and sixth.[1] Habulin's and Kreator Racing's major racing weekend happened at round two at Imola, on 27 May 2012. In race one Habulin finished third[2] and this was his first podium in the series. However, this was just an introduction to race two, which he won.[3] This represents one of the top five results in the Croatian single-seaters until now. At round three in Misano on 22 July, Habulin was third in both races. Round four was at the Red Bull Ring Austria on 2 September, and Habulin achieved third place in race one and second place in race two. At the end of the season Habulin raced in round five at the Vallelunga in which he crashed[4] in race one and was seventh in race two and Mugello where he finished fourth and fifth. A prize giving ceremony was held at Mugello racetrack after the Race 2, in which Habulin was officially named runner-up in drivers championship, and the best rookie. Kreator Racing finished 4th in the Team Championship despite the fact they competed only with one driver. This was the first and only season in the series and one of the best team and driver debuts in the series.
